This is a day of excitement for pool owners across the country, as they wait all winter long to prepare their swimming pools for a summer of fun, fitness and enjoyment. Swimming pools may be used by some for physical exercise and social interaction, but we appreciate them the most when we’re sitting next too one, sipping on one (or all) of these poolside themed cocktails:
